Classic Chicago Church Gets Renewed with Iconyx

Chicago, IL, March 2012…  Located in the heart of Chicago’s downtown, St. John Cantius is one of the city’s oldest Roman Catholic churches, with roots that date back to the influx of Polish immigrants in the 19th century. But the church’s parish, which once numbered in the tens of thousands, has waned over the years, and when Reverend Frank Phillips was appointed pastor in 1988 he found a church in neglect and extreme disrepair.

Over the ensuing years Rev. Phillips has led community efforts to renovate the church and restore it to its former glory. Recently the church replaced an aging, ineffective sound system dating back many decades, installing an Iconyx IC16-R digitally steerable array system from Renkus-Heinz. As Erik Saari of Wheaton, IL-based Sound Planning Associates explains, the Iconyx system brought much-needed improved intelligibility to the sanctuary.

“Like many older sanctuaries, this one was built to enhance the sound of organ and choir,” says Saari. “And as with most classic architecture, aesthetics was a concern – we were not at liberty to install a large, obtrusive system, so the Iconyx’s low profile was definitely an asset.”

Although the new system was intended primarily for speech reinforcement, Saari points out that it has done more than simply improve intelligibility. “One of the nice things about the Renkus-Heinz system as opposed to the other line arrays that we’ve used is that I was able to put in more of the low end frequencies and it didn’t disrupt the acoustics of the space,” says Saari. “It really added some nice warmth, especially since some of the priests there have really young voices. It’s now intelligible and also a little bit warmer sounding.”

The DSP-controlled directivity of the Iconyx system enables the sound to be directed to the congregation and away from walls and other reflective surfaces, greatly increasing intelligibility. “I’ve heard nothing but rave reviews from everybody who has been going there for many, many years,” Saari reports. “It definitely sounds a lot better.”

Sound Planning Associates also supplied the church with a recording system. St. John Cantius church is well known for its choir, which regularly performs Gregorian chant and Renaissance liturgical music, as well as modern sacred choral works.

SYMETRIX JUPITER PROCESSORS UNITE FIRST UNITED

firstunitedmethodist_sandiego.JPGSAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA – MARCH 2012: First United Methodist Church of San Diego is the largest Methodist church in southern California and occupies one of the most architecturally-splendid church campuses in the area. Over many decades, First United has struggled with sound reinforcement systems for its multiple venues that somehow always failed to live up to expectations. Recently, Paul Svenson of Sound Casework Inc. (PS Audio Video) reversed the inertia of that sorry history, unifying all five sound systems under a common, easy-to-use, foolproof paradigm centered on the Symetrix Jupiter 8 signal processor and the Symetrix ARC-2e wall panel remote. Now volunteers can get a quick explanation of how to work on any system and transfer their knowledge transparently to any of the other systems, relying on Svenson’s intuitive design to deliver perfect audio with confidence.

“I’ve been trying to get First United’s more

DANLEY DIALS IN STATE-OF-THE-ART SOUND AT KELOWNA CHRISTIAN CENTRE

kelowna_christiancentre_outside.JPGKELOWNA, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA: Kelowna Christian Centre (KCC) in Kelowna, British Columbia is many things to many people. It is a contemporary, charismatic church with services that feature a full band, high-energy worship, multi-media presentations, dramatic performances, and dance. It is also a school: kindergarten through twelfth grade for attending students and the largest online school in British Columbia for remote students. Finally, by hosting numerous special events and conferences throughout the year, it is a hub of community life. KCC’s flexible, decade-old sanctuary is heavily used by the church and the school, and also for events, but until recently its multi-media infrastructure and sound reinforcement were outdated and approaching haphazard. Local A/V integrator AVcom Technical Productions designed and installed a new state-of-the-art A/V system centered on Danley Sound Labs loudspeakers and subwoofers.

The original installation had its share of problems from the more

ASHLY AUDIO DELIVERS MULTIPLE LAYERS OF CONTROL IN GREEK ORTHODOX CHURCH

greekorthodox_church.JPGROSELAND, NEW JERSEY: Saints Nicholas Constantine and Helen (SNCH) Greek Orthodox Church recently completed construction of a beautiful and inspiring new building in Roseland, New Jersey. Although orthodox in religious doctrine, SNCH was open to incorporating cutting-edge technologies in order to maximize the impact of its services and events. Audio Incorporated of nearby Roselle Park, New Jersey designed and installed a sound reinforcement system centered on Ashly Audio that accommodates three simultaneous methods of control: Ashly WR Series wall mounted remotes, wireless iPad control via a Crestron interface, and Ashly’s new FR-16 network fader remote. Via a single Ethernet cable, the affordable Ashly FR-16 provides a bank of faders and push buttons that the integrator can assign to any function inside an Ashly processor.

“Our design started with Ashly’s ne24.24M signal processor,” explained Mike Sinclair, president and owner of Audio Incorporated. “The reliability more

CLEAR AS A BELL: DANLEY SOUND LABS RINGS IN A NEW ERA AT SALVATION ARMY CLEARWATER CHURCH

salvationarmy_church.JPGCLEARWATER, FLORIDA – FEBRUARY 2012: The Salvation Army is consistently ranked as one of the most popular philanthropic groups in the United States. Its name conjures images of Christmastime bell-ringers and thrift stores, both of which provide support for the Army’s vast network of social support programs and its comprehensive disaster relief aid. It is perhaps ironic that despite its very public alignment as a Christian organization, the Salvation Army is not well known for its church services. Its Clearwater, Florida church has grown over the decades, in its congregation and its physical space, as a result of local “adherents” joining and officers from around the country retiring to its Floridian splendor. After moving to a beautiful new building in 1990 with sanctuary capacity for 385 and overflow capacity for over 300 more, the congregants suffered with a woefully inadequate sound system.
